Thanks for all the help guys...I elected to go with the Samsung. I am in the process of calibrating it now and I am having difficulties. I am using a Sound and Vision step through which is Avia based and also the THX demos with my Phantom Menance dvd. The contrast is apparently one of the most important settings as all others are based upon it. However, call me stupid, but I am having difficulty with that particular test. There are five boxes of varying degrees of grey until the top, which is the whitest. If I am understanding the test correctly...I am told to adjust the contrast until the top box and the one below bleed into one another...until there is no line of distinction...then, set it just below that setting. However... I have my contrast set to the top of the scale and the boxes never come to a point where they loose distinction. I have the color tone indicator set to "warm" as per instructions. What am I doing wrong? What further can be done?
